USCI:Making Sense of the Turmoil in Hong Kong(9/26)

The USC US-China Institute and the Asia Society Southern California are delighted to host an event with Robert Koepp about the turmoil in Hong Kong. Operating as a vital commercial gateway in Asia for nearly two centuries, Hong Kong suddenly has been wracked with political turmoil, presenting potentially far-reaching ramifications for China and the global economy. What is the best way to interpret the implications these recent events in Hong Kong have for the city and beyond? Join us to consider the facts and possibilities with the latest developments in this crucial hub city for Asia and the world. Moderated by Clayton Dube, the Executive Director of the USC U.S.-China Institute.

Robert Koepp serves as director and the chief economist at the Corporate Network in Hong Kong for The Economist Group, parent company of the weekly publication, The Economist. An active writer, speaker, and commentator, Koepp has authored two full-length books, Betting on China:Chinese Stocks, American Stock Markets, and the Wagers on a New Dynamic in Global Capitalism and Clusters of Creativity:Enduring Lessons on Innovation and Entrepreneurship from Silicon Valley and Europe's Silicon Fen. He has written about numerous topics, including on disruptive technologies, digital economics, Big Data, China's sports industry, the Belt-Road Initiative, and the Network's annual Asia Business Outlook Survey.

USCI:Making Sense of the Turmoil in Hong Kong(9/26)

The USC U.S.-China Institutes presents a book talk with Klaus Mühlhahn. Many commentators claim that China's ongoing global rise reflects a restoration of its earlier international prominence, while others highlight that China's emergence reflects distinctive characteristics of the country's current political leadership. In his new book, Making China Modern, Klaus Mühlhahn of the Free University of Berlin provides a panoramic survey of China's rise and resilience through war and rebellion, disease and famine. At this event Professor Mühlhahn will focus on the lessons from history that provide insight into China's evolving international position and how the United States and others should respond.

USCI:Making Sense of the Turmoil in Hong Kong(9/26)

Please join us for a screening of the 2015 documentary A Purpose Built School  毛坦厂日与夜 (Chinese with English subtitles; runs 95 minutes)by filmmaker Jia Ding 賈丁, followed by a discussion with the director and scholars from USC and Beijing Normal University. Maotanchang High School, a.k.a. "The Gaokao Factory," is located in a small town in China's Anhui Province. It's a "cram school" with military-style discipline, where high school students train round the clock for the national college entrance exam. Maotanchang employs only male teachers, whose jobs and bonuses are dependent on their students' test scores. They monitor students' study time with CCTV and raid dormitories at random. This film offers a rare glimpse inside the walls of one of the world's most intense educational institutions. This program is co-sponsored by the USC East Asian Library and Beijing Normal University.
